Hey everyone, I had been trying to find a good forurm for frum Jews online where I can ask questions (since I want to be a BT and there aren't many frum people where I live).

In addition to learning as much Torah and Talmud as I can, I also want to learn more Hebrew to help me to understand Torah and to get by better whenever I visit Israel. I think I found a few good ways, but I was wondering if people would have any advice (especially if you're a BT like I am!). Any help would be apprecited!

1. Rosetta Stone -- It seems expensive, but does it work?
2. Online classes at universities -- Same question!
3. The Israeli Network -- They show Israeli TV outside Israel with English subtitles, but most of the shows are not tziunis. Is this OK?

Any thoughts on these or other methods would be appreciated! Thanks for any insights!

(Am I now officially a Jew With a Question? :)

Rosetta Stone.

:)
Start with God - the first step in learning is bowing down to God; only fools thumb their noses at such wisdom and learning.

Yeah, I'd also like to learn yiddish. I daven at a chassidish shtiebel, and I just know that I'm missing out on a lot of great jokes.

Best way to learn Yiddish is by hanging out with people who talk Yiddish.

How about real classes at univerisities?
I bet there are free podcasts for this purpose
And moving to Israel even temporary is not such a bad idea...
